Popular with all my friends and family, I love these truffles as a quick and easy treat, or as a mid-afternoon energy boost. Packed with nuts and fruit, not only do they taste great, but are super healthy too. Enjoy!
1. In a food processor, blend the almonds until finely chopped.
2. Drain and press as much water as you can out of the oats and add this to the almonds. Add also the dates, raisins, cocoa powder, maple syrup, oil and salt. Pulse until you start to get a sticky, thick mixture.
3. Add the coconut and pulse a few more times.
4. Place mixture in a large bowl and stir in the cranberries until combined. Now roll up into neat little balls and place in fridge for an hour. I sprinkled mine with some extra coconut to look like snow (I have always been very imaginative) but if you are not that daring then you can fancy them up any way you choose!
